MY WIFE AND I WERE CONSIDERING CHANGING OUR FIREPLACE WHICH HAD A LARGE WOOD BURNING STOVE TO A FIREPLACE WITH GAS LOGS. THE MANTLE WHICH WAS ORIGINAL TO THE HOUSE ALSO NEEDED AN UPGRADE. WE THOUGHT AND THOUGHT AND DID THE NORMAL RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET. AS USUAL FOR US WE SPENT SO MANY HOURS TRYING TO COME UP WITH A DESIGN AND THEN ALONG COMES ED. MR ED WAUGH GAVE US A PROPOSAL THAT AT FIRST DID NOT SEEM EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR BUT IN THE END IT WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. ED CREATED A FIREPLACE WITH GAS LOGS AND A FURNITURE GRADE MANTLE/FIREPLACE FRONT THAT IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND IS ALREADY GIVING US MANY HOURS OF HEAT AND JUST PLAIN FUN SITTING IN FRONT OF THE FIRE. ED IS BY FAR IN MY 66 YEARS THE BEST CARPENTER/DESIGNER/WOODWORKER WHATEVER YOU MAY CALL HIM THAT I HAVE EVER HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF KNOWING. HE IS SUCH A TRUSTWORTHY AND HONEST PERSON. I CAN ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND ED. I HAVE THE BEFORE AND AFTER PICTURES TO PROVE WHAT I AM SAYING TOO!

Nine years ago Ed Waugh build our house and we are glad we chose him. We had a real concern about everything being right and made sure our house turned out just like we wanted it to. Even though our house was built on bad soil, we have not had a single problem.
Ed not only built a beautiful house, we became great friends. I would highly recommend Waugh Construction Co.

Mr. Ed Waugh constructed a home for our family in 1994. As of today's date, my family and I are pleased with the structure and are enjoying it to the fullest.
We have found Mr. Waugh's work to be very professional.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Just wanted to thank you again for all of your outstanding work. It's not often, in today's world, to have the privilege of working with someone who's values, integrity and professionalism are beyond reproach!
It's been our pleasure working with you!
Thanks so much!
Thought I should write you a letter to let you know what a pleasurable experience you made for us in building our home.
All the time you and Michael spent making sure that everything was done correctly and that nothing was done outside of Florida building code specifications. When something was done wrong by the subs, you had them come back and correct their mistakes.
Also, I must mention that fact that you being the designer and the builder made everything a lot smoother. You did some beautiful designs for our home. The granite counter tops, the columns, the arches, the crown molding, all the windows, and the tile floors make our home one that we are proud to show off.
Ed, if you ever need to show someone the quality of work that you have done, please use our home as an example. Also, feel free to use our names as a reference.
I recently had a home built in Santa Rosa Beach by Ed Waugh and Michael Strength of Waugh Custom Homes. I have heard horror stories of some people's experiences with contractors, but working with Ed and Michael was a pleasure. They were both courteous, pleasant, and above all, honest.
Ed and Michael were dedicated to building a quality home, and made every effort to be sure that I was satisfied. I am very detail-oriented, and I am also an artist who wanted to incorporate my studio into my home. I was impressed with their willingness to work with me to create a home unique to my personal tastes and needs, truly a custom home and not a carbon copy.
They are meticulous craftsmen who take great pride in their work, qualities which seem to become more and more scarce in today's world. I have been pleased, as well, to observe that they stand behind their work. They addressed and resolved all items on the punch-out list and have been quick to respond to any questions that arose after my move in.
I am enjoying my lovely home, and I think anyone who chose them to build would have a pleasurable experience and would be pleased with the result.
As you know the work on our house is now complete and we are delighted! Having closed in the upper deck on our house with windows and sliders truly adds a new dimension to the livability of our waterfront house. We can better enjoy the view of the Santa Rosa Sound and the breeze through the windows is delightful.
Please know that I invited no less than fourteen contractors to my house to offer bids and opted to work with you over all of them. I am very glad that I did. I take this opportunity to commend you on not only your workmanship, but on your dependability, honesty and professionalism. We give you well earned recognition for your fine service.
Should you ever have an occasion to need someone to provide a reference, please feel free to offer him or her my name and telephone number. Thanks again.

I am writing this letter so that anyone who is considering building a house or planning an addition to an existing dwelling, will give Waugh Construction an opportunity to show you what they can do. I contracted with Ed Waugh and his crew to do a 1500 square foot addition to my home. Although I did acquire other bids on this project, Ed was always the front runner because I had previous experience with his skill, knowledge and patience when it comes to making a customer happy.
I first met Ed several years ago when he completed a covered back porch and patio at my house. His expertise at adding something onto an existing structure and making it look like it had always been there was something to see. Not only did this project go well, but he noticed several ways to improve the appearance of my back yard and solved a chronic drainage problem in the process. I was impressed not only by the final appearance of my back porch and patio, but by the pains he took to insure structural integrity of everything he built. He even incorporated some built-in planters that really made my wife happy.
My parents took notice of the type of work that Ed did and contracted him to do a small project, including adding a large covered patio to an existing building. Ed and his crew did a good job and finished in record time. The attention to detail and the extra effort to please my parents on this project really sealed the deal in my mind on which company I would contract to build an addition onto my house.
Finally, I must comment on the workmanship employed on the addition to my own house. With the birth of a daughter, we quickly realized that more space was needed. After talking with several builders, I noticed that Ed was the only one who noticed that the elevation of the land could cause a problem in connecting the roof of the addition to the existing roof on my house. Ed solved the problem and the addition went smoothly. He also designed a laundry room and extra bedroom for us that have proven invaluable. We also converted our garage into a large family room with many built-in features that really added to the appearance and functionality of the living area of our house. Once again, Ed made my wife happy by designing a huge walk-in closet for her. During this entire process, Ed constantly informed me of each step of the construction and really worked with the subcontractors to insure a smooth running project. Many times Ed would notice ways to add convenience to our lives and incorporated these features into our addition. To say the least, the project went well and my family became friends with both Ed and his crew. Even the clean up after the construction was finished and done in a most orderly and neat fashion.
One more thing, and to me the most important, Ed Waugh is a man of honesty and integrity. You can believe what he says and never worry about being cheated or taken advantage of. In today's world of "making a buck," an honest contractor is a rare find. I encourage you to give Waugh Construction a try and decide for yourself if I speak the truth.
The house looks great, fabulous and fantastic. Thanks for all of your and your crew's hard work. We sure made the right choice when we chose you to build our house,
Allen and Dee Dee Phillips
Thank you so much for making our addition such a pleasure - you and your guys were so nice. I can't tell you how pleased we are with everything; we feel that you were all very professional and most of all very fair. They say "Word of mouth is the best advertisement." If that is true you should soon have more customers than you can handle!
Thanks so much! All of your guys were great. We all started to feel like they were a part of our family!
God Bless you all
